China's Huawei sues United States over federal ban on its products

The case was submitted Wednesday in the Eastern District of Texas, under whose jurisdiction Huawei's US headquarters falls.

Chinese telecom giant Huawei is suing the United States for barring government agencies from buying the telecom company's equipment and services and accused them of hacking its servers and stealing company emails.

Huawei in a statement said it has filed a complaint in a US district court in Texas challenging its addition to the US National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA).

Chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies Meng Wanzhou is to face her second extradition hearing on May 8.

The move comes amid a conflict between the countries over Canada's arrest of a Chinese technology company executive and is seen by some as a new tactic to achieve leverage over Ottawa.

"Huawei are prepared to take this legal action as a proper and last resort".

Meanwhile, Trump said in December that he would possibly intervene in the criminal trial if it could help him to secure a trade deal with China.

Canola prices already have been hit by China's retaliatory tariffs on USA agricultural exports.

Huawei officials denied that the privately held company was "owned or influenced" by China's government.

By hiding Skycom's connection to Huawei, Meng is accused of personally misleading USA banks into clearing cash connected with transactions between the two companies.

Kelly shouts, cries during interview with CBS This Morning’s Gayle King
She continued to say the singer's been surrounded by yes-men for decades who've never told him the truth about his wrongdoings. But he said the allegations against him are "not true" during a television interview with Gayle King for CBS .

In its lawsuit, Huawei said its "equipment and services are subject to advanced security procedures, and no backdoors, implants, or other intentional security vulnerabilities have been documented in any of the more than 170 countries in the world where Huawei equipment and services are used".

A law recently enacted by Beijing that obliges Chinese companies to aid the government on national security has added to the concerns about Huawei.

"Lifting the NDAA ban will give the US Government the flexibility it needs to work with Huawei and solve real security issues", Guo said. USA prosecutors have filed charges accusing Meng, who is the daughter of Huawei's founder, of lying to banks about dealings with Iran.

The Chinese tech giant on Thursday announced it has filed a lawsuit against the USA government, which has banned its federal agents from using the equipment citing privacy concerns. He said he had no information about whether the Chinese government would join Huawei in the lawsuit.

Much of the USA concern is rooted in fears that China, through Huawei, may export the high-tech security state that is accelerating under President Xi Jinping.

Canada approved extradition proceedings on March 1 this year, but Ms Meng has since sued Canada's Government for procedural wrongs in her arrest.

Peck called the case unique, saying there are "concerns about political characters, motivation, comments by the USA president".

The Chinese embassy statement has said that due to "obvious political interference", Canada should refuse the US extradition request and release Meng.

As the diplomatic dispute between China and Canada intensified, Beijing has detained two Canadians working in China, and on Monday accused one of them of stealing Chinese state secrets passed on to him by the other.
